Inspired by Christopher Alexander's A Pattern Language, in Itty Bitty Citty your score depends on building patterns of residential, commercial, industrial and park areas. Two residential tiles next to each other gets you +1 health, residential next to commercial gets +1 health and +1 wealth, industrial next to residential gets -2 health, and so on. There are two independent scores, with no combined metric—it's up to you to decide whether you care more about health, wealth, or a balance between the two.
Have a play and see what patterns you can find! And let me know your scores, I'm not sure what the highest wealth or health possible is :)
Here are a few patterns to get you started:
RR : +1 health RC : +1 health, +1 wealth II : +1 wealth RI : -2 health RI RC : +2 health (4-tile pattern) ... and many others!
(all patterns will still match when rotated/flipped)
An alien astronomer is using a very inefficient method to observe the star systems they visit. Their spaceships are terribly advanced, but their optics are woefully behind: their best telescope only lets them see a single color.
But they persist. They survey the sky, one color at a time, moving the telescope just a little each time, and noting down the color they see. Slowly, painstakingly, an image emerges.
